Being a wedding photographer gives me an advantage when it comes to planning and making sugesstions to my couples on their big day. In many instances it's easy for us photographers and any vendor in the wedding business to forget that our clients don't know how to plan a wedding, because it's their first and only time doing it! You'll be getting tons of suggestions and ideas from family and friends who think they know all about wedding planning and that is okay and welcomed, but it's great to get an idea of what your photographer is looking for to capture on your big day before it happens.
In the photography business there are many different shots that we are looking to capture throughout the day and most of them you aren't aware of while it's going on. For me, I try to capture candid moments throughout your day beginning with your bridal prep| i.e hair and makeup. This time is essential to grabbing those important details and catching you just before you turn from a Ms. to a Mrs.!
1. Getting your makeup and hair done.
2. The ring shot.
3. The dress. Ohhh the dress.
4. The dress zip or lace up.
5. The walk.
6. His look | Can be down the aisle first or at a first look
7. The parents.
8. Your first dance with the last partner.
9. Party moves.
10. Your getaway.
